Here is the problem: Write 0.04 in exponential form.

u just do say u had .50 and u wanted to put it into a percent u just move the decimal over two spaces and u get 50%

correct. you move the decimal point over two times to the right and it becomes 50%

i have to do patterns. the pattern is
17_ 33_ _ 27 have no concept to follow

Example for writing in exponential form..hope you get the idea.....

4=4*10power0
40=4*10power1
400=4*10power2
..
...
0.4=4*10power-1
0.04=4*10power-2
0.004=4*10power-3
